    I know this is months later but it took a while for me to really wrap my head around the fact that you are gone. There have been so many times something comes up and I want to tell you and realize I don't have that option anymore. The memories we have together can never be taken away and I hold them on the my heart. I am so grateful I got to see you the last few months of your life. I'm sorry I didn't realize how bad you were suffering. I know there were good days and not so good days but I could always see the real Steve at times. The one who loved all Boston sports, the one who had so much pride, the crazy kid who was also polite and had manners, the least fake person who wore his heart on his sleeve and not afraid to tell someone how you felt..I'm so happy we were able to talk and that you got to meet my kids. You would've been an amazing Dad I know that for a fact. You could have done or been anything you wanted to. I wish you saw what I saw. My prayers and thoughts are always with your family and wondering how they are doing. The holidays must've been hard this year. I can't explain how much I'll miss you. I always knew when you were walking down the street- you had that Kosonen walk that I fell in love with when I was just 16. So much has changed but at the same time I feel like it was just yesterday. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, and I don't think there will be. You meant more to me than I had ever told you. I love you And want to Thank you for everything. Love Katie O.

    Your love was infectious. You wore your heart on your sleeve. Troubles we shared sure, loss of your friends, my friends connected us in a way I will never forget. I always had a great deal of respect for you and love you buddy. We become friends in ways many would never remain friends. You got a bad wrap man and that's all I can say. You took me in off the street and you didn't have a clue who i was. I know you saw in me what I saw in you, a kindhearted soul who just wanted to succeed. A true friend I'll never forget , I love you bro and will always keep you close to my heart.
